pidgin-im-gnome-shell-extension

Make Pidgin IM conversations appear in the Gnome Shell message tray

Features

  • Supports Chats and IMs for now (i.e. no file transfers or attentions)
  • User icons
  • User status as secondary icon
  • Sends typing state
  • Shows unread messages count
  • Tries to restore unread messages count after screen lock/unlock
  • Search provider for buddys from connected accounts (can be disabled from extension preferences)

Issues

  • Messages appear unseen in Pidgin after expanding notification in message tray. Don't know how to set unseen state in Pidgin
  • No notifications on locked screen even if notification settings allow it. Because Gnome Shell disables all extensions on screen lock

Supported Gnome Shell Versions

  • v31: 3.10 - 3.30
  • v32: 3.32
  • v36: 3.36
  • v40: 40 - 42

Installation

Requirements

Because notifications used in this extension are based on Telepathy clien ones, shipped with gnome-shell, Telepathy typelib must be installed.

As for Ubuntu 20.04 this is gir1.2-telepathyglib-0.12 and gir1.2-telepathylogger-0.2 packages.
